Hayes & Harlington overhaul approved

Proposals for a major overhaul of Hayes & Harlington station have been approved as part of Crossrail.

A new glass and steel structure will be built along with a new footbridge, lifts to provide step-free access to platforms, a new waiting room, platform extensions, and new and replacement canopies. New lighting, information screens, signage and CCTV will also be installed.

The building will be situated immediately to the north of the existing station. From the end of 2017, the station will be run by Transport for London.

Crossrail Surface Director Matthew White said: “The new building will properly reflect the importance of the station to the area and, together with the broader improvements, will make using the station a much more pleasant experience.”

When Crossrail opens fully in 2019, up to ten trains per hour will run to Hayes & Harlington, with journey times to central London cut significantly.
